Eep, where did February go? And hello March, month of birthdays, catkins and hopefully, spring weather.
Thought I should post an update on how the expectant ewes are doing. In short, they’re all well. The Shetlands are looking plumper than I’ve ever seen them, which must mean that their lambs are growing well.
And the Ryeland ewes are looking similar. Here’s Coffee, who’s the first due, her predicted lambing date is the 8th April. She’s doing the usual Ryeland thing close to lambing, where they stand around in the field for much of the day, doing nothing, other than looking confused. So she’s doing just fine.
In non-sheepy news, progress on my new flat is going well. I’m not going to post photos here today, as frankly it still looks a mess. But if you’re curious, there are some new pics in my Flickr set. We’ll be doing plumbing and tiling soon, which I’m very excited about, if that’s not too geeky a thing to admit.
